A Step-by-step guide to dental radiography
Dental radiographs can be taken by general practitioners through adapting their existing knowledge and practice. The equipment and techniques for producing a full mouth series of images will be covered. Whilst a dedicated dental X-ray machine and film is preferable and easier, some tips will be given on using standard X-ray equipment

Dental radiography - why good medicine makes good business sense
There are no more excuses for not having dental radiography in your practice. If you are not taking dental radiographs you are missing disease and not treating your patients adequately. In addition to diagnosis, dental radiography also helps with clinical decision making and assists with extraction planning. These both help to make dental procedures go more smoothly and end up reducing stress in your vets. Dental radiography becomes the cornerstone to improve awareness and confidence in your staff that you are providing value to your clients and patients and helps to grow your dental program. You can also consider adding more services to your practice that can help your practice grow. Seeing the miraculous results in your patients because you treated all the disease that was present is reward enough to convince you that dental radiography is essential and equipment will quickly pay for itself if used properly

Extractions - keeping out of trouble!
Dental extractions are a daunting prospect for many. They are the number one reason Veterinarians ignore dental complaints in their patients. If you are worried by the possibility of extractions, your patients will suffer. Extractions are a legitimate and often required treatment for our Veterinary patients. From “simple” non-surgical approaches to the much more involved surgical removal of large teeth, your dental treatments should not be a concerning part of your day. Learn the skills that will enable you to take control of these situations and make dental extractions easy

Dental disease - antibiotics and analgesics, getting the balance right
Do we rely too heavily on antibiotics when treating oral and dental related disease conditions? Conversely, do we overlook the importance of appropriate analgesia? Too often we reach for antibiotics when a patient presents with oral or dental related disease. This presentation aims at exploring and understanding the indications for appropriate antibiotic use when treating dental and oral diseases in companion animals. We will look at the underlying disease processes and current research and recommendations in human and animal fields in order to provide an understanding as to when and why antibiotics are or are not indicated. Another important and often overlooked aspect of care for these patients is provision of adequate analgesia. Our main focus in this part of the presentation will be on the use of local anaesthetics and regional nerve blocks

Endodontics - what could go wrong?
The aim of the presentation is demonstrate to those wishing to advance their dental skills and treatment options that procedures don’t always go to plan as in the textbooks. Endodontic therapy covers the discipline dealing with diseases that affect the tooth pulp tissue. The two most frequent procedures performed in endodontics are vital pulpotomy followed by pulp capping and pulpectomy or root canal therapy. The common problems encountered when performing endodontic therapies include variable anatomy, periapical abscessation, presence of pulp stones, obliterated canals, inadequate equipment for the species, instrument failure and breakage, tooth fracture, tooth loss and haemorrhage. We will present cases involving the complications and attempt to describe methods to overcome these issues

Equine dentistry - what could possibly go wrong?
People will do more to avoid pain than gain pleasure. So if we can describe all the painful things that can go wrong in equine dentistry, we can plan to avoid them, and thus maximise the chance of getting a pleasurable experience for the horse, owner and veterinarian! The list is literally exhaustive, but can be split into the following headings: a) Getting the horse to stay still – clinical examination, sedation, nerve blocks. b) Examining and showing the problems to the owner – being able to examine properly and communicate with the owner is essential to gain the client’s confidence. c) Making the diagnosis accurately – there can be a lot of pathology hiding in the many nooks and crannies in the equine mouth, so a systematic method of listing the diagnoses and prioritising them can help to avoid negative outcomes. d) Treating the problems effectively and efficiently – whether you are extracting a cap, a wolf tooth, filing teeth, removing a tumour, medicating the sedated patient or opening a sinus, there are plenty of opportunities for iatrogenic damage, so plan well and aim to minimise this.

Lumps, bumps and weeping sores on horse's heads
Lumps, bumps and weeping sores on heads are very commonly encountered in equine populations, so learning how to investigate these is important for equine and mixed practice veterinarians. Having a list of differential diagnoses in your head before attending the patient, establishing a good history, performing a thorough distant and close physical examination, followed by a thorough internal and external oral examination are all essential. Additional diagnostic tools such as fine needle aspirate, biopsy, therapeutic trials, endoscopy, ultrasound, radiography, MRI, CT, Scintigraphy and Thermography are all possibly required to reach the definitive diagnosis and then offer the treatment options.

Extracting horse teeth - tips, tricks and techniques
Being presented with a horse that requires a molar extraction is daunting. Careful planning as well as being aware of one’s abilities is essential. The range of instrumentation that will be needed is large and decisions have to be made as the whether the procedure can be performed in the standing, sedated horse or will the procedure require a general anaesthetic. Many things can and do go wrong and pre-planning for these is part of the process. What is required pre-operatively? What is the best sedation regime and which nerve blocks will aid in the process? Where can the procedure be done especially if it needs to progress to general anaesthesia. What will be the aftercare? How many x-rays should be taken? All of these considerations must be addressed

Dental homecare - What's new?
Dental home care is critically important for maintaining dental health in our pets as well as for ourselves. As vets we are able to actively remove all tartar and plaque during a dental procedure but without effective follow up homecare it will all rapidly recur and drive the progression and/or development of periodontal disease. Unfortunately effective dental home care has historically had very poor owner compliance because it is harder to convince a dog or cat that brushing is a good idea compared with people, although my three year old is also yet to be convinced. There are several new products that have the potential to greatly improve compliance by making homecare easier and less time consuming. After a brief summary of the historically available options for dental homecare we will discuss what has become available over the last few years. How do these products work, what is the evidence that they do what they claim to do and how should they be incorporated into what we recommend for dental home care to pet owners

Wild dental care: keeping zoo and exotic species smiling
While animals are kept in zoos or on display, their dental care becomes a vital part of their husbandry procedures. There are many challenges when dealing with unusual species which are vastly different from our domestic pets. The anatomy is often unknown or at least poorly described and publications are often by non-veterinarians. Sometimes two different publications will have two different descriptions of the dental and oral anatomy. A skull from the species to be treated should always be available if possible. Most frequently the veterinary dentist becomes involved when a keeper notices that something is wrong with the animal. Hopefully the zoo or park veterinarians are notified and a useful description of the condition can be available so an idea of what will be required and appropriate instrumentation selected. This is not always the case and dental treatment in the exotics can be very challenging
